One of the ways you can share your understanding when reading is by writing a book review to share on your blog. Here’s one I wrote to share with you, so you’d get the idea:
Have you ever wondered what happens in a picture book when you’re not there reading it? No? Well, neither had I until I read You’re Finally Here by Melanie Watt. Bunny was so excited to see our class, the readers, that he cheered and flipped and threw confetti. But then he got angry with us for keeping him waiting. I guess he got bored while the book was sitting on the shelf and had to do a whole lot of things that he didn’t want to do. He yelled at us. “What took you so long?” He said some other things too.
But then Bunny apologized for getting angry. He tried to begin again, to show appreciation that we were there and reading. So we’d keep doing what we were doing, he tired to make contract with us. He wanted us to stay and keep him entertained… but then, his phone rang.
I won’t tell you exactly what happened at the end of the book. You’ll have to read it for yourself. I think it will make you smile. I think it might make you think twice about how you treat people that you hope will stick with you and help you out. Read You’re Finally Here and let me know what you think.
